Today’s Headlines


Mets, Phillies wrap up London Series.

After taking game one of the 2024 London Series on Saturday, the Phillies couldn’t secure the two-game sweep on Sunday. Philadelphia got out to an early lead, but New York tied the game in the 6th. David Dahl hit a pinch-hit home run for the Phillies in the bottom of the 7th to give them the lead. The Mets rallied in the top of the 9th with a leadoff walk and back-to-back singles, the second coming from Mark Vientos to tie the game at four. This is where Phillies closer José Alvarado couldn’t get out of his own way. He walked another batter then hit Pete Alonso with a pitch to give the Mets the lead, and then a passed ball allowed another run to score.

New York went into the bottom of the 9th with a 6-4 lead, but their own bullpen problems nearly gave the game away. They hit a batter, allowed two singles, then walked in a run. Up a run with the bases loaded, Mets catcher Luis Torrens pulled off this incredible double play to secure the win for New York.


Twins come alive in 10th inning.

The Twins entered Sunday having lost five straight games and not having scored in 22 straight innings. They put up three in the 1st before going back and forth with the Pirates. The game went to extra innings tied at four. The 10th inning is where Minnesota came alive for seven runs thanks to a leadoff triple from Manuel Margot, a Carlos Santana double, and singles from Carlos Correa and Max Kepler. After snapping their skid, Minnesota will host the Rockies to start the week.


A trio of MLB debuts!

We had a few players make their MLB debuts today! First up is Rockies top prospect Adael Amador. In the last three weeks at Double-A, Amador hit .292 with seven home runs and 10 RBI. He wasted no time in the big leagues, recording his first big league hit on the first pitch he saw.

Next up is slugger Tyler Locklear for the Mariners. He’s put together solid numbers so far this season, slashing .293/.404/.520 in 51 games between Double- and Triple-A. His first big league hit was a 7th inning, go-ahead double hit at 100.1 mph.

Last but not least is Atlanta pitcher Hurston Waldrep. The right-hander was Atlanta’s first-round pick in 2023. He went 3.2 innings, allowing seven earned runs on four hits, four walks. As fantasy favorite Eric Cross mentioned, however, it wasn’t all bad. Waldrep got eight whiffs on 26 swings and had a 32% CSW%.


This & That.

I’m introducing a This & That segment to highlight some top performers worthy of praise! Sunday’s players include:



Best Moments From Yesterday


Yusei 🤦

Blue Jays pitcher Yusei Kikuchi was trying to get out of the way of the foul ball but ran directly into Tyler Soderstrom trying to make the play.


Remembering José Fernández.

As a Marlins fan, I still remember the moment I found out about José Fernández’s death. I’m not sure there’s a player who shows more joy on the field that José did. His 7-year-old daughter visited Marlins Park for the first time this weekend.


“We want Soto!”
